I was told that adding a pinch of salt into the coffee grounds before brewing it will enhance the taste of the coffee.
Is this true or just an old wives' tale?

I'Ching, what an interesting question! Coffee and salt seem like they wouldn't mix well, but I did some reading, and it seems like many people add a pinch of salt to their coffee to counteract bitterness. Here are a couple of in-depth discussions about it:
• Coffee with Salt
- at Chowhound
• Salt in coffee
• A pinch of salt for your coffee, Sir?
I think I am up for trying this. Readers, do you do this?
